Clwyd West AM Darren Millar has welcomed news that in the last quarter £14,489 was awarded by the Big Lottery Fund to the Clwyd West constituency.
Neuadd Goffa Plwyf y Bylchau near Denbigh received £5,000 to install a new heating system in the community hall, while Ysgol Eirias received £4,989 to fund IT equipment to improve health and diet and increase physical activity.
A further grant of £4,500 went to Ricochet Enterprises Ltd in Colwyn Bay to enable them to deliver 12 workshops to those experiencing anxiety and mental health issues to build their confidence and self-esteem. The grant will part-fund workshop facilitator fees, venue hire, marketing materials and web/social media design.
“It is always pleasing to hear of projects in my constituency benefiting from National Lottery funding. The fact that three very worthwhile projects have received so much is great news.
“The Big Lottery Fund supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities and it is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery. It has already had a significant impact on communities across Clwyd West and I am keen to see more groups from this area benefit in the future.”
Gareth Williams, National Lottery Awards for All Funding Manager said:
“People who play the National Lottery may not realise what an amazing contribution they are making to the wellbeing of communities across Wales. Every month the Big Lottery Fund are giving grants of thousands of pounds for people to do amazing things.”
